Do you have a passion for people and innovation? Our Talent Acquisition teams build Groupon's greatest asset: ouremployees.


Are you the kind of recruiter who is passionate about developing relationships, learning more about state-of-the-art tech, and helping others find the right fit? Do you enjoy working on a collaborative team with less silos and greater ownership? How about taking your ideas from concept to reality quickly? Then we want to talk.


Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.


As a member of our Talent Acquisition team, you will play a deeply consultative role with business leaders and ensure that our people are matched to roles and teams which allow them to be great. We love curious and creative people who discover new approaches to finding and engaging talent.


We are looking for a Senior Technical Recruiter to partner with hiring leaders locally and beyond. This role will have a high degree of ownership and act as an advisor to technology leadership at Groupon. You will develop recruiting strategies, source candidates, and maintain an actionable pipeline of engineering talent, to build teams that sit at the intersection of your local community and mobile, fueling a commerce platform that continues to evolve. Ultimately, you'll contribute to our overall business growth by recruiting some of the best tech talent in the world.


You’ll spend time on the following:

  • You will own the end-to-end recruitment life cycle - sourcing, screening, interviewing, negotiating with, and hiring mid career to executive technical talent

  • Influence Groupons technology roadmap through assessment of cutting edge solutions for the team.

  • You will partner with hiring teams to ensure that hires match by more than the immediate needs of the particular team or candidate

  • You should be curious and willing to try new things in order to champion an amazing candidate experience

  • Encourage an equally amazing process within hiring teams, including thorough strategy meetings, interview debriefs, and process re-calibration when necessary

  • Build relationships and work with cross-functional teams, including business leaders, HR, Legal, Compensation, etc.

  • Articulate our business mission and core values in ways that resonate with each particular contact, presenting an objective view of life at Groupon

  • Participate in process-improvement initiatives within Groupon's Global Recruiting function


We’re excited about you if you have:

  • Passion for providing candidates a great experience and developing great partnerships with hiring managers through the recruiting process

  • Ability to carry a workload with a variety of profiles and hiring managers simultaneously

  • Detailed track record of consistently meeting hiring goals

  • Ability to speak comfortably to basic tech stack architecture, front-end, and back-end engineering profiles as well as product management, design, and data science

  • Experience sourcing candidates through social media beyond LinkedIn; AIRS certification and/or advanced web recruiting skills (complex search string savvy) preferred

  • Experience negotiating offers and closing candidates successfully

  • Bachelor's Degree or equivalent experience

  • 5+ years technical recruiting experience in a rapidly changing environment
